Dawning of the Age of Apollo…

It is my sad duty to inform…that Pegusis…my faithful computer for the last seven [or so] years…has taken critically ill…and will no longer be joining us here, on the internet…

This has been on the horizon for probably six months, now…Having owned enough computers over the years…I very strongly suspect the RAM is experiencing a critical failure…The symptoms are always scatter shot…and the same things don’t stay broken, from one reboot to the next…

…Since it’s officially an old PC, now…I’m not going to patch it back up…It’s time for something…upgraded…

…Enter Apollo!…my first ever Dell…[Yes…I named it after a Greek god]…

I was a bit shocked to find out this thing only has two USB ports…and no DVD drive [Thankfully, I have an external one, but still]…

On the up side…it’s got a blazing fast Icore 7 [“I 7 Core”?] processor…16 Gigs of RAM…and a two terabyte hard drive…Don’t even ask me to explain the graphics card…It sounded impressive in name…seems to be working great…but I don’t honestly understand those things…I’m a lover, not a techie…

I went from an unreliable PC about two days ago…to copying all of my essential data…to transferring it over onto Apollo…To downloading and installing most of my essential and favorite software…to getting logged back into my essential online accounts…

…And now, here I am…

If it’s seemed like my activity has been down…that is why…And I still have a bunch of stuff to download and install…Most specifically, some Magix Music Maker stuff…as I’m currently missing a whole bunch of synthesizers…and I figure, I likely need to install a few older versions, and activate them with their license keys, in order to get those back…Grrrrrr!…

…At least a few gigs of downloading, there…

…I’m also hoping I can get one of my old graphics programs to install on this machine…It’s really good at compressing image sizes down…And I don’t like my current options that I’m finding…Gonna have to grab the external drive for that one.

It’s always a pain in the rear end, having to migrate to a new PC…

I love having a new PC…but it’s going to take a while to settle in.

…Didn’t expect to spend my days off dealing with this…

…But, I’ve got a kick ass machine, now…to match my blog!

I think I’ve got Rocco sounding like his old self again, also…with exception to the massive glut of corrective lexicon entries, which are now going to have to be listened for…and added in…

One other unexpected plus…is that my Logitech headset finally has a machine, that it can fully function with again…I figured ever hearing out of the headphones again, was a lost hope…though the mic has worked fine, all along.

I’m running into all sorts of nit picky things…and I’m trying not to let it get to me…just let it go, and flow with it…as “the new reality”…

…Pegusis [like all my previous computers I used daily], was set up and running just how I liked it…and how I still want it…
